The Liveship Trilogy , narrated in the third person and following several protagonists and an antagonist, particularly various members of the Bingtown Vestrit family, set around Bingtown, the Rain Wilds, the Pirate Isles and the Cursed Shores:. The Rain Wilds Chronicles , narrated in the third person and following various dragon handlers and settlers, set on the Rain Wild River and in Kelsingra:. Naturally, a lot of fans will be happy to read all the books, in order. However, these are long books. While the older ones will be available in cheap second-hand copies, investing in all the newer ones can be expensive, and they represent hours and hours of reading.
